The Scythetooth Raptor begins to appear in critter formations during the lower to mid levels. At these levels, the combination of these raptors' health and defenses can make it difficult to quickly dispatch of them, especially with low accuracy attacks.
The Scythetooth has a natural tendency to land critical hits against Soldiers, and such a critical can take down a soldier in a single hit, which can be particularly devastating at lower levels. The Scythetooth also has a weaker attack which strikes an entire row at once. As long as the Scythetooth can draw a line to someone in the second row, it can execute this attack and hit every unit in that row, regardless of blocking units in front of them. Players should take caution and be wary of how their back lines are positioned.
